A posthumous publication, A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder, was one of the first 'Lost World' type science-fiction novels. However, because it wasn't published immeidately, by the time it was, other authors (such as H. Rider Haggard) had used this genre, and so it was seen as a bit cliched. It tells the story of Adam More, a sailor who, upon being shipwrecked, goes down a mysterious underground passage, only to discover a hidden world with an ancient civilisation. The manuscript in the title is written by More, and refers to the secondary plot which forms a frame for the central narrative, of some yachtsmen who find it sealed in a copper cylinder.
